No such article. Is it more than 48 hours old? Then RoadRunenr
expired it already (if it was in a binaries group).

It's only 6 days old. Sounds like RR's retention is horrible.

news-server.austin.rr.com retention on binaries is about 36 hours.
Pathetic, really.


Pathetic is an understatement. As I just told Andy I get almost 5
months from ABF. Many things I get take longer than 36 hours to get
all the .pars and .rars. 36 hours would make me as unhappy as being
stuck with google. (couldn't resist)

I have my newsreader (40tude Dialog) set to download the first
post of every thread when I collect headers in alt.binaries.food,
so I don't miss anything.


Sounds like a cool feature. I don't know if Agent has that, but with
the retention I have it's not an issue

I have both RR and SBC DSL. SBC's retention is a couple weeks.
With RR's retention though, you'd really have to babysit any of
the multi-part multimedia/binaries groups to get anything
complete.

RR should just bag the binary groups. I don't know if RR's other
servers, (KC, Columbus, Tampa Bay, etc..) are any better.

Nope, it's about 3 days retention on Tampa Bay's server for binaries.
